Radford is committed to outstanding education and the transformation of the whole person in community. Leadership is about this transformation, the modelling as well as making of it. Radford leadership is grounded in service, modelled on a principle of giving power and guidance to others.

Student leaders are taught to live with integrity; embody the values of the College; be wholly themselves and flourish whilst engaged in the service of community. Student leaders are models for others to emulate and this is seen in their presence and demeanour on the classroom, on the playground, in sporting and co curricular teams and through community service initiatives.
Within each year level students can nominate to lead and participate in committees across the curricular, service and co-curricular life of the College. Student Year level representatives under the guidance of senior leaders contribute to the shape and direction of programs and experiences offered to all students at the College.
Leadership experiences across the College are intentionally crafted to provide scope for formal and informal roles and opportunities for a large number of students to learn leadership skills. As students progress towards their final years at College, the challenge and complexity of the roles increase. Our senior students lead student productions, large scale service initiatives locally and internationally, drive leadership portfolios across the campus and mentor younger students through classroom support, House and service programs.
